About Me

My photo
Greenville, Texas
I've been paper crafting for about 20 years. In October 2007 I joined Stampin' Up! as an independent demonstrator. I have found that I truly love stamping, more than any other craft I've tried...and I've tried them all. I'm a SAHM of 4 and I also direct a parents' day out program. Both of these "jobs" give me plenty of opportunities to pull out my stamps and inks and have a ball! I've been married to my wonderful hubby for 21 years. He gets gold stars for supporting paper crafting/stamping addictions. :)

Love Notes

I just love "Love Notes"..no I'm not talking about the ones from Thomas, although I do love those too...I'm talking about the cute little 3x3 cards that you can create and give to someone special. I made a set for a friend as part of her Christmas present, here are the pictures.

I also made a cute box and matching envelopes, but for the life of me I can't figure out why I didn't take pictures of those. Must have gotten distracted while trying to remember to get pictures of every thing I made over the holidays. LOL!

The color combo I used was Not Quite Navy, Always Artichoke, and Bashful Blue. This stamp set "Puns From The Past" was new in the '08 Fall/Winter Idea Book & Catalog. I wasn't sure if I'd like it or not...but ended up loving it...it's great for "Love Notes".

See you next time....where the ink dries....

More handmade gifts...

Here's another gift I made over the holidays. As some of you know I'm the Cheer Mom for Brooke's JV Cheer Squad...so I get to make a lot of stuff for "my girls". For Christmas this year I made them all Christmas ornaments.

I stamped the Santa from "Jolliest Time of the Year" stamp set on acetate and colored it with paint pens. I cut it out with my Coluzzle, rolled it up and stuck it inside a glass ornament I bought at Michael's.

Then I topped it off with some red dotted ribbon and used a thin black ribbon for the hanger.

I made 11 of them..once I got going they didn't take long at all.

See you next time....where the ink dries.

Stationary Set

I made several handmade gifts over the holidays...this is a stationary set I made.

This is the front of the holder. I used "Tart & Tangy" stamp set and "Summer Picnic" designer paper. The colors are Old Olive, Bashful Blue, Real Red, and Pumpkin Pie.

This is the inside of the holder. I made 10 cards, with 5 different designs. I also included some Whisper White envelopes.

These are the cards that were included.

I'll find the directions...they're buried under all the paper scraps LOL...and post them as a tutorial...

See you next time...where the ink dries....

My apologies

Sorry. I haven't been a very good blogger. My intentions were good...then reality (aka life) took over...and time flew by and it's been two months since my last blog.

I am going to try to blog more often...notice I said try. So don't give up on me yet.

I did alot of stamping and paper crafting over the holidays. Making gifts and Christmas cards. I'll post them in separate posts so they will be easier to view.

I hope each of you have a great New Year!

See you next time....where the ink dries....
